So, International Law Week continues apace. Today, we have an interview with third-year student, Marcena Winterscheidt.
During her time at W&L Law, Marcena has done a tremendous amount of international work. She spent the summer after her first-year in Pursat, Cambodia working for International Bridges to Justice, an organization that strives to protect due process and achieve fair trials for the accused throughout the world. Last summer, she worked in Vienna, Austria for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, an office that deals with a number of issues including alternative development, criminal justice, prison reform and crime prevention, drug trafficking and terrorism prevention.
In addition, she is currently enrolled in our Transnational Access to Justice practicum. Students in this practicum work closely with law students at the Louis A. Grimes School of Law in Monrovia, Liberia on building greater access to justice in Liberia’s criminal justice system. Click here to read more about this practicum.
Last week, we sat down with Marcena to talk about her work in the Access to Justice practicum, her summer internships and her experiences at W&L Law.
